On the street where you live..............! by 


The title, ’ poetic licence ’ – it is actually on the street where I live. My apologies to ’ My Fair Lady ’ Julie Andrews stage show. I took this whilst on my morning walk the other day on my way to take photographs of ring necked Doves.
Location, Te Haumi Heights, Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

Panasonic LUMIX – GH2 at 58mm, 14×140 lens, 1/2000, f/8, iso 320, Manual.
From a single RAW image .

    You would never know…
    At first I thought it was Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown…?

  • Yep Larry – you are so right, it could be part of Lake Wakatipu. It’s actually called the Veronica Channel which leads into Opua from Paihia. It was propably named after some ship that came to a sticky end !

    There’s nothing quite like a bit of poetic licence to liven our days up! I’m all for it! This is a super shot Roy, similar to the scenes we used to see every morning as we looked out of our living room window down over the River Teign in Teignmouth, Devon. Very nice mate and I like the almost 3D effect that is created by the deep coloured forground greenery.

  • Thank you kindly Peter. I’ve noticed this 3D effect around here fairly early in the morning when you have mists. There was mist at the back of me when I took this photograph and the sun was shining faily low down through a gap in the channel to my left.

    Wow this is simply stunning Roy, a beautiful capture and such a lovely place to live…

  • Thank you so much Andrea – we are spoilt in our surroundings ! We quite often get this lighting effect when the sun begins to burn the mist off as it rises !
